Different Types of Humidors and Their Uses

The texture of a cigar is a lot more different than the way we think. Especially if you are a non-smoker or you have no idea of what they are made up of, who will probably have no idea of a cigar humidor too. Cigars look solid, but the contents inside are pretty much humid and wet in a way. This is why they are kept in airtight boxes that prevent it from losing its humid nature. If the cigar loses its humid texture, they will lose its addictive quality. So in order to prevent the cigars from losing the wet condition, they are preserved in airtight boxes. These airtight boxes that are specially made for containing cigars are known as humidors.
